Marine Services

RFC was opened in 1976 for the main purpose of performing fumigation services aboard ocean-going vessels in transit.

With more than 40 years in the business, we have been integrally involved in product development, participated as a partner with multiple domestic and foreign governmental regulatory agencies in developing, testing and implementing fumigation procedures, methods, and protocols for the safe and effective use of fumigants used aboard ocean-going vessels for in transit fumigations.

In-Transit Ship Hold Fumigation

Fumigation of raw agricultural commodities.

Loop Re-circulation fumigation

This method incorporates tubing systems and motor/blower units that are installed into the empty ship holds prior to loading the cargo. The fumigation services are performed after completion of loading the cargo.

Sub-Surface Fumigant Application

This is applied into the commodities after completion of the loading process.

Barge Fumigations

We offer fumigation on river barges, lash barges and ocean-going barges

RFC personnel have performed over 12,000 shipboard fumigations. We have partnered with multiple domestic and foreign government agencies and private companies in various trial fumigation techniques and methodologies. Several of these trials have resulted in the implementation of officially accepted methods for in transit fumigation aboard ships in the USDA/FGIS Fumigation Handbook. RFC continues to play an integral role in helping to establish accepted methods and protocols for in transit ship hold fumigation standards and procedures. We have worked closely with United States agencies such as USDA, FGIS, GIPSA, ARS, and NAEGA just to name a few.

RFC has a strong history of international fumigation consulting / performance / and trade delegation participation. We have traveled to many different countries in these endeavors:
